Some 40 personnel and staff of the different operation centers (OpCens) of the Palawan Rescue 165 recently underwent a five-day training on Basic Life Support (BLS) with Standard First Aid Training to continue enhancing their capabilities as first responders during disasters and emergency situations.
The Palawan Provincial Information Office (PIO) said in a statement sent Monday that the training was done on November 19-23.
Lorna Loor of the Provincial Health Office (PHO) facilitated their training on how to give proper cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), proper bandaging of various types of injuries, and emergency response.
“Maliban pa rito ay nagsagawa rin ng mass casualty incident simulation upang masukat at makita kung ano ang natutunan ng mga partisipante,” the PIO said.
The event was attended by Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (PDRRMO) chief Jerry Alili and Rescue 165 program manager Richristopher Magbanua.
The PIO said both stressed the need for the participants to be dedicated to doing their jobs as first responders to save lives.
Alili said it is important for the Rescue 165 personnel and staff to upgrade their life-saving skills so people will trust them to take care of their lives.
